New Album Review

DEADMAU5 “At Play Vol.2”

Debuting on DJ Mags hallowed annual Top 100 DJ poll at #11 – beating the likes of the legendary DJ’s Paul Oakenfold and Carl Cox, Deadmau5 pronounced Dead Mouse is riding the crest of a very ion-demand musical wave.

Now with Deadmau5 floating high on the A list circuit, getting splashed on the covers of magazine and packing it out at the world’s largest clubs, Deadmau5 at Play is a timely reminder of a talent discovered and music that was well ahead of its time.

The unmixed LP features club favorites.  Also included in the package are Deadmau5s collaborations with Play Records found and owner, Melleefresh.

Tracks like Afterhours, which charted at number one on the Beatports Top 100 and nominated for best dance track at the JUNO awards (Canada equivalent of the Grammys) sit alongside old school favorites like Cocktail Queen and Hey Baby making this a true collector’s treat!

International electro-house dance diva and world renowned club bunny, Melleny Melody aka Melleefresh launched Play Records in 1996 with partner in crime, DJ Spydabrown. Over the years, Play Records has become one of Canada’s foremost labels for electro house and an internationally recognized purveyor of “new, fresh and bangin’ vibes for the dance floor.”

Melleefresh vs. Deadmau5 began to collaborate on remixes of Melleefresh’s hit Beautiful Rich and Horny. After a great UK response from the vinyl remixes (not to mention a notorious YouTube video of four girls lip synching the song in their car across the English countryside), Melleefresh and Deadmau5 began working on new original material that consists of what can be joyfully described as dirty mix of filthy, trashed-out, and downright sexy electro-house.
